This has already been posted in the for sale section but i thought i would post it in the main area too as there seems to be a lot of people on the hunt for R's at the moment so wouldnt want anybody getting caught out with this one.

As some members on here will already know but Its been clocked and the seller isnt telling future buyers about it. Not to sure if he is the owner who is posting and talking about it in the bottom link, may have been sold on yet again since that guy?

The Ebay link to the car

http://www.ebay.co.u...id=513454951213

The link to the thread about all the clocking and history with the car.

https://www.r32oc.com...t-buy-this-car/

By all accounts this is Waynes old R. (sold way before any clocking)

I saw this car when i was looking to buy an R32 over 6 months ago now, im sure i worked out with a bit of help from google and a past owner that the car is at least 30k wrong !

LEMON!

On Autotrader. I emailed them to say the car is clocked and now they have blocked the number plates out.

Apparently a few have reported them to the trading standards.

That is NOT an honest car. I feel sorry for anyone who ends up buying it :?

If we keep bumping this up then we should hopefully stop anyone on here or who joins here to look for a R32 from buying this one

How about we pin it so it stays at the top?

This is brilliant!!

Surely the trader selling this car is breaking the law by not disclosing its true mileage??

Anyone know how far out the mileage is? Forever the optimist i am, anyone got a hunch what might actually wrong with the car? could be worth just going to see it, telling the guy you know it's clocked, offer him a shit load less not to tell the police, buy it, give a solid service & once over and look after it from there on?!

could be a win in there somewhere boys (and girls)!
you can probably find me on ebay or pistonheads....

Clocked isn't the only reason. It's had a dodgy paint job, at least 10 keepers, a rattly clutch, an amazing amount of times this car has been for sale. R ownership should be a joy.

For 6k there's been beautiful cars pass through these doors! Honesty is king

He showed me 2 papers on it, 1 was Awesome GTI with ecu upgrade, and the other was Miltek exhaust £900 ish was going to show me more after we got back from test drive but I was put off with his attitude when we got back so I left it

His website says all cars are HPI checked? I cant work that bit out lol.

He probably had an attitude because so many people have told him its clocked. I hate traders like this :wacko:

Like Cheempej has said there are SOOOOOOOOOOOOO many thing wrong with it!!

From what i remember the R32 seats were also missing at some point and had been replaced with gti leathers. It now has some R32 seats back in it.

Literally probably the most dishonest R32 out there on the road today, for sale or not for sale, its a wrong'un!!

It was strange a mechanic coming out with me when I test drove it yesterday. Also when I got back I asked him what he would take for it cash, and he said £5800 and wouldn't go lower. Really gutted, because I was hoping to trade my Stage1 mk1 LCR in for one but should be grateful I never then because of this "Lemon" Guess I will have to keep looking now

On their website it says after investigation there is a mileage discrepancy.

You'd want this car until you got to park it along side another R32 in the DPB and realised how different the colour is!

It's been round the block this car and want avoiding unless you get it for 3k and have money to spend on getting it right!

Already reduced down to £5500 which is still about £1500 more than it should go for !
